How does this help
If you have a higher security site where you want to run restricted party screening and approve whether a visitor should be invited to your site you can now do so with the Descartes Visual Compliance integration with Workflows.
How does it work?
When someone completes a Workflow response, Visual Compliance checks for matches based on information included in the workflow and notes them in the Workflow response admin notes. Based on these results, an admin can approve the workflow response.
A site can be set up so that an approved response is required on this workflow for a visitor to be invited or to check-in.
Process before check-in where the employee inviting a visitor or the visitor can submit a request to visit workflow :
Process during Check-in

Running a check
If the workflow will be filled by individuals other than those visiting the site and on whom a check is to be run, then it is suggested to share the Delegated response link with those individuals.
Once shared, they can fill in the required information. On submission, the workflow approvers get notified of a response for their approval. The integration will also run on the information submitted, and this integration check's outcomes can be seen just above the Admin Notes.
If matches are found, you can click on Show check results to see further details of these matches found.
Once the integration response and other information provided have been reviewed, the approver can decide whether they want to approve the workflow response and the request for this individual to visit or it is to be rejected.
